BALDWYN – Police are still investigating a crash that killed a woman and her 11-year-old granddaughter in Baldwyn on Saturday.
Lee County Coroner Carolyn Green said Montana Roberts, 11, and Deborah Hill, 59, died from injuries sustained in the accident.
Baldwyn Police Officer Anthony Buse said it appears a car was traveling east on County Road 2788 (Pratts Road) around 3 p.m. when the driver failed to yield at the Highway 145 intersection, clipping the northbound vehicle driven by Hill.
HiIl’s vehicle then spun into the southbound lane of Highway 145 where it was struck by a third vehicle.
Hill was airlifted to North Mississippi Medical Center-Tupelo where she later died. Montana was pronounced dead at the scene.
The accident is being investigated by Buse, Officer Mark Tate and Police Chief Troy Agnew.
As they continue to work the accident, Buse said they will check cellphone records.
The driver and passenger from the third vehicle were transported to North Mississippi Medical Center with minor injuries.
Buse said they are not releasing the names of anyone involved in the wreck while it is under investigation.
“At the moment there are no charges filed and since it’s under investigation we can’t release any personal information on anyone,” he said. “We can say there was no apparent alcohol or drugs involved.”
